LOEWE Releases Adorable 'My Neighbor Totoro' Capsule Collection
An in-demand range that explores nature and the magical world outdoors.
Last month, LOEWE teased an upcoming collaboration with animated Studio Ghibli title My Neighbor Totoro. Dropping – and instantly selling out online – the collection this month, LOEWE’s partnership with ‘My Neighbor Totoro’ gave the fashion industry an exciting glimpse into Hayao Miyazaki’s magical outdoor world.
Hayao Miyazaki’s 1988 masterpiece My Neighbor Totoro tells the story of Mei and Satsuki’s friendship with the magical Totoro and his cohorts, both of which can’t be seen by adults but only by children who love them. The collaboration between LOEWE and the animated movie transports the protagonists of the movie onto a range of clothing, leather bags and accessories.
The connection between the two collaborators is a mutual love of craft and artisanal techniques while the connection between LOEWE and My Neighbor Totoro is the mutual connection with nature and the world outdoors. The collection features the iconic characters and the fantasy landscapes they inhabit as prints, allover prints, jacquard intarsia and leather marquetry, as well as hand-painted motifs or transformed into pom-poms. Shapes are loose and relaxed across t-shirts, hooded sweatshirts, jumpers, culottes and biker jackets.
The Totoro characters are featured in intarsia on the surface of iconic LOEWE bags such as the Puzzle, the Balloon and the Hammock, as well as on small leather accessories such as pouches, cases and wallets.
